Cadillac has done a great job with the latest generation Escalade. The full-size premium SUV builds on the success of its predecessors and does everything better, and while it may have lost some ground to its newer rivals in the segment, it is still a favorite among certain deep-pocketed crowds.
As everyone and their grandmother knows, one is only a few mouse clicks away from multiple aftermarket components designed specifically for this model. Most of the time, owners stop at new wheels, but there are various body kits available for it, too, and companies that would gladly reupholster its interior and give it a power boost in the process.

Theoretically, the Cadillac Escalade has what it takes to venture off the lit path. For improved traction, it would need all-terrain tires wrapped around a set of steelies. If you plan on going all-in, then you could also have it equipped with different bumpers, a snorkel, a winch, and even an exoskeleton, in addition to the occasional lift kit that would allow it to tackle larger obstacles.

Practically, this model is pretty much a mall crawler that doubles as a school bus and a daily for certain people. As a result, the chance of seeing one being put through its paces on some arduous tracks away from the usual beaten path is slim because the best Escalade-spotting spot is usually the local mall's parking lot. And that's kind of sad, given that it could easily double as an off-roader.

However, this story is not about a muscular Escalade that could carve its own path through the woods, like the one we wrote about here two months ago, as it revolves around something entirely different: a slammed copy. Well, you may want to make that digitally slammed, as 412donklife rearranged the high-rider's pixels, turning the car into a low-rider and sharing the images on social media earlier this week.

The low ground clearance is but one virtual modification, as this Caddy comes with a set of oversized alloys from HRE. The wheels likely measure around 30 inches in diameter, and they have a 24-karat gold touch for extra blingness. In fact, this is the only flashy thing you will see on it, as elsewhere, it is actually a murdered-out proposal with a black finish, a chrome-delete package, smoked front and rear lighting units, and privacy windows.

A 6.2L supercharged V8 supplies the firepower, as you're looking at the hot Escalade-V. The motor puts 682 hp (692 ps/503 kW) and 653 pound-feet (886 Nm) of torque under the driver's right foot, allowing the vehicle to reach 60 mph (97 kph) in just 4.4 seconds. So, what's your take on this rendered example? Is it a yay or a nay?
